VB code to make Digita backups manageable

Because Digita products do not produce separate data files, users are forced to use their own backup software, which automatically creates a new backup file on every run, increasing the size of the backup folder every night (for nightly backups). This causes me a problem in that my off-site backups grow massively every day, increasing my off-site storage costs and the time it takes the backup to run. I delete the old files when I remember, but it is a hassle to do it every day.

Someone has told me that it would only take about four lines of Visual Basic code to move the backup files to a separate folder, overwriting the previous day's backup, leaving a single file to be backed up for each programme, instead of one for every day.

Does anyone know how to do that?
